Laser Skin Tightening works by aiding the growth and remodeling of collagen. The laser light energy is delivered at specific setting for each treatment to maximize results based on skin type and clinical exam
Benefits: stimulates the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. In a few weeks fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. This procedure does not require local anesthesia and is very well tolerated.
Recommended frequency of treatment: a series of 4-6 treatments every 3-4 week.

Your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth light for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
There is some discomfort with each laser pulse, best described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. The discomfort resolves in several seconds. Topical anesthetics are available which are applied to the skin prior to the skin tightening procedure.
The number of the Collagen Stimulating treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated. The number of treatment usually recommended is 3-6. You will begin to see results prior to finishing the series of treatments.
Normal side effects may include redness and swelling which will last for 24-48 hours. Rare side effects include pigmentation changes, blistering and bruising. These are very, very rare and generally only last a few days.
During your first office visit, the practitioner may ask you at length about your health condition, lifestyle, and behavior. The practitioner will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs and behaviors that may contribute to your condition. Inform the laser technician about all treatments or medications you are taking and all medical conditions you have.
